Storage and IT infrastructure giant , which operates manufacturing and research and development facilities in the Triangle area, is buying privately held Configuresoft.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Configuresoft, which provides server configuration, change and compliance management software, is privately held. Based in Colorado, it has received venture capital funding from JMI Equity.

EMC (NYSE: EMC) said Configuresoft’s technology will enable it to enable customers to “automate visibility and control across physical and virtual data centers.”

The companies have worked together since last year, collaborating on EMC Server Configuration Manager and EMC Configuration Analytics Manager products.

The deal is expected to close next month.

“Customers are looking for new tools and processes to help them more effectively manage the virtualized data center,” said Chris Gahagan, senior vice president for resource management software at EMC. “Server configuration and change management are among the top challenges faced by IT. With Configuresoft, we’re gaining market-leading server configuration management solutions, giving customers the power they need to fully automate the data center in compliance with new physical and virtual best practice policies.”

Configuresoft launched in 1999.
